Responsible Cat Ownership Course
The Responsible Cat Ownership Course gives you some basic information about your legal responsibilities as a cat owner. It will also help you be a better companion to your cat, teaching you about the best food, how to keep your pet entertained, dealing with scratching and yowling, and making sure your cat stays safely at home.
The course covers three main topics:
- Section 1 – Rights and responsibilities
- Section 2 – Cat welfare and management
- Section 3 – Cat behaviour
